The Ministry of Health said that four Palestinians were killed just before midnight on Tuesday in an Israeli drone raid on Nour Shams refugee camp, east of Tulkarem, in the northern occupied West Bank.

Medical sources at Thabet Thabet Governmental Hospital in Tulkaarem said four young men were killed tonight in an Israeli drone shelling of Nour Shams refugee camp east of Tulkarem.

Sources at the hospital said that four young men succumbed to critical injuries they sustained after being targeted in an Israeli drone attack on central Nour Shams camp.

The Ministry of Health identified the four slain Palestinians as Yazid Sa’ad Adel Shafe’, 22, Nemer Anwar Ahmad Hamarsheh, 25, Mohammed Yasir Raja Shahadeh, 20 and Mohammed Hassan Ghanem Knoh, 22.

WAFA correspondent said a huge explosion was heard in the city of Tulkarem after an occupation drone fired a missile targeting a neighborhood in the middle of the camp.

The killing of the four youths brings the number of Palestinians killed in Tulkarem over the past 24 hours to six.

On Monday, a woman and child were killed during the occupation's incursion into the city of Tulkarem and the camp of Nour Shams. The woman was killed by shrapnel injuries in the neck and back, and the child was shot and killed by an Israeli forces bullet to the head.

The Israeli occupation forces broke into the camp on Monday, carrying out a large-scale military assault that lasted for over seven hours and resulted in the killing of a woman and a child and the destruction of infrastructure and residents’ properties.

On Sunday, 24-year-old Saeed Ezzat Jaber was killed and five others, including two seriously, were injured after an occupation plane bombed a house in al-Manshiya neighborhood in Nour Shams camp.

The number of people killed in the West Bank since the start of the massive Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people on October 7, 2023, has risen to 560, including 136 children. In addition, some 5,300 others have been wounded.
